Sad This was my mom's, sister's, and significant other's first cruise. I'm sad about this because the staterooms rattled and vibrated with violent noise every night while we were trying to sleep. Woke up about once per hour unable to sleep through the loud noise, so we were all exhausted on a cruise that was supposed to be a relaxing vacation. Then, the dining staff wasn't NEARLY as friendly and accurate as I am used to getting on a Carnival Cruise Line ship. Overall, very disappointed, since I've had better cruises with Carnival before. I am very disappointed that this was my family's first cruise experience. Very bad first impression, Carnival. I'm very disappointed.

Ship Quality
Staterooms rattled and violently vibrated with loud noise.
Food and Dining
Food was generally pretty good. But dining staff consistently forgot to bring out dishes we had ordered and seldom checked on us to verify everything was going well.
Service and Staff
People working the housekeeping were very great and helpful.
Good comedy shows.
Children's Programs
Didn't use the children's programs so I cannot comment.
Onboard Activities
Overall enjoyed the onboard activities.
Destinations and Excursions
Cabin / Stateroom
Loud, rattly, and generally hard to sleep in with all the noise from the ship.
Miami, Florida
Cozumel, Mexico
Jose Cuervo experience was a great excursion.
Belize City, Belize
Don't wander into Belize. It is scary and you feel like you're about to get mugged the entire time.
Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Beautiful tourist area.
George Town, Grand Cayman
Good beaches... but super expensive to do anything here.


I don't know if there are quieter staterooms where you can actually sleep on this ship or not, but definitely don't use the Main (level 2) deck near the back of the ship. You will be hard pressed to sleep a wink. And don't worry about dining in the dining rooms at night. Disappointing service.
